The renovation of an old piano factory in London has been given a cutting-edge new look thanks to our lasers!

The factory in Camden has been converted into 15 residential apartments with the whole interior of the building being remodelled and the exterior repaired.

Having been commissioned by London based Ambigram Architects, we laser cut several panels for balustrades which transform the building’s main communal staircase.

Using 3mm mild steel, the staircase design follows that of floating treads cantilevering from the wall with the aim of the balustrades being to create something eye catching whilst adhering to building regulations.

Using advanced digital design techniques, a gradient pattern of perforations across the balustrades was created – following the saw-tooth profile of the floating tread of the staircase without ever touching them.

These balustrades prove why laser cutting has always been great for creating something which is both practical and beautiful!
